EXCLUSIVE: Trailer for Lluís Miñarro's Love Me Not
by David González
- The new directorial effort by the seasoned Spanish producer is set to world-premiere in the Signatures section of the 48th IFFR
A subversively inventive film where comedy and melodrama meld together. Set in a metaphorical war in the Middle East, Salomé – going further than Oscar Wilde's character – is a soldier in love with someone who couldn't be less appropriate. Eros and Thanatos travel together to remind us that truth is based on beauty and love. The film also explores the autarky of cinematic images. A reverie on the edge of ambivalence and gender.
This is the synopsis of Love Me Not [+see also:
